Hi Tania

I'm fairly sure that anyone with global Admin rights will be able to delete the board. Project Admin rights will not be sufficient

Yes, they need to be a JIRA or system admin, or be an admin for the board (that's separate from the project admin rights).  JIRA admins can also change the owners of a board.
